mamasan, yeah, I want to enter but I don't know what to submit. any ideas?

kris, it was a 50mm lens with a UV filter on. I think thats what caused the hexagon flares and gave the sun a 'starburst.' I f-stopped at f/16 and shutter at 1/160 (I think. Will check metadata when i get home.)

The shot pretty much came out like this. So all I did in PS was adjust highlights/shadows to get more of the background. Then did some 'curving' for a bit of Ommpphh.

Lisi, it is my house just outside the front door. And thanks for the 'compliment.' Absolutely fabulous! Everyone GO there (HKDP) NOW!

personally i love all your portraits of people. but your pics of buildings are pretty stunning too, especially when the light is a little moody (there's one of a fountain, i think, all glass and metal and looking like a spiny flower)

gooluck!

Your photos never disappoint! This is great. Did you use a filter / Photoshop?

Can't wait either! Yay. My first theme day.

on se voit bien allonger dans son lit et ce soleil qui traverse la fenetre, et on fait la grasse matinée..


one sees oneself well lengthening in his bed and this sun which crosses the window, and one makes the fatty morning.

...elegant and glorious. I was just reading the heading of your blog as in a trance. This part, "Once a mining town, now a holiday destination. Malaysia Boleh!" I was wondering what "Boleh" meant, then I thought maybe it is "longlive" or something, then I scrolled down and I saw this radiant light coming into my eyes, for a moment I thought I was daydreaming. A light, a heavenly light...wake up. Then I said, wow, what an elegant and glorious image.-)

Thanks guys :)

Carlos, Boleh loosely means Can Do It. Usually it means Yes but in this case, Malaysia Can Do It!

Jing...hehehehhehheheheh

Lynn, I'm still looking through my collection. I'm so confused but I can enter more than 1 shot.

Ruth, to infinity and beyoooonnnddddd!

Dawn, I just kinda focused the camera at a point where the sun wasn't directly hitting the lens. I have another shot where it's just pure light...
